Summer of India – An opportunity to have Fun in the Sun

Summer has knocked the door of India and hot winds as well as scorching heat are trending in the country. Citizens, who were wrapped in woolen attires almost two months back, are now enveloped in light cotton clothes to relieve themselves from the boiling heat.

Until February, the rays of the sun are soothing. But as March forwards, the sun-rays become hotter day by day. As April and May approach, the temperature shoots up to 40°C to 45°C. Even in the Himalayan mountain region, the temperature remains near about 20°C.

The modern amenities like Fan, Air Conditioners, etc. are no less than a blessing for mankind to cope with summer. But one look at the monuments of India and there arises an urge to salute the brilliant architecture to beat the heat. For instance, Hawa Mahal of Jaipur. Its grid is so designed that it allows the chilled breeze through the intricate pattern and thus, air conditioning the whole area during summers.

Not only the lifestyle but eating habits of people also get a twist. Watermelon, Cucumber, Lemonade, Juices, etc. replace hot beverages like coffee and tea in the daytime. Ice Lollies, Matka Kulfi (a sweet yet chilled dessert rolled on a stick) and Ice Candies replace hot snacks. And of course, summer is incomplete without Mangoes, the king of fruits.

Along with offering flavors and essence through its subsidiary SNIFF for making yummy Ice Lollies, Shimla Hills is all set to export processed Mango products i.e. Pulp, Puree, Concentrate, and IQF to various parts of the World. The processed form of Mangoes is used to make Jam, Nectar, juice, mango ice-cream, dessert, puddings, bakery fillings, baby foods, flavours, yoghurt and confectionery.

Shimla Hills has to offer the processed mango products of varieties such as Alphonso, Totapuri, and Kesar.
